Common Residential Roof Types

There are a few different kinds of roofs available for you to choose from. The first is asphalt shingles. These shingles have been the most popular type of residential roofing in America for quite some time now and are still very common today. Asphalt shingles come in a wide range of colors, textures, and styles so it can be fun to choose this roof type. They also offer a variety of underlayment’s they are made out of, such as fiberglass or organic felt that will add additional insulation to your home. Over the years asphalt siding has become more durable and resistant to wind damage which is great for those who live in storm prone areas. This kind of roof wears well while protecting against leaks.

Clay Tile roofs are another popular option and is becoming more and more popular. This is mostly due to clay tile’s long life span, which makes it a great investment in your home. This roof type can last for 30-50 years and does not need much maintenance throughout its lifetime. It resists the heat very well and provides great insulation even during colder months of the year. Clay Tile roofs are very aesthetically pleasing and add value to homes because they come in many different colors, shades, shapes and sizes that will fit any home style or preference out there.

There are many reasons why people choose this roofing material over others on the market; however what ultimately matters is how you feel about it from both an aesthetic standpoint as well as a financial stand point when considering all factors.

Flat Roofing

Flat roofing also has gained popularity over the past decade or so. This ban be attributed to the following factors:

–  It is much easier to access, thus lower costs of labor.

– Flat roofs are also a great option for commercial buildings as they can span large areas and still be relatively inexpensive to install.

– These type of roofs are extremely effective at keeping moisture away from the building materials located inside your home such that it does not create structural damage within the attic.

As mentioned above flat roofs possess many benefits that can be used to increase energy efficiency by allowing excess moisture to escape into the air around your property instead of into the rooms below where you will find stored insulation or trusses in your roof structure.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs are one of the most popular roofing options due to their durability and cost effectiveness. Their durability comes from the steel or aluminum material used in their construction as well as the fact that they require no maintenance for up to 50 years. They are also a popular choice because of their cost effectiveness when compared to other types of roofs such as shingles.

Slate Roofing

Slate roofing not as common in most cases but does offer some advantages over other options out there. Besides the obvious historic look that slate roofing has there are other advantages to it. Slate roofs require very little maintenance and can last over 100 years when well-maintained. As a result of the longevity of slate roofs they also have a lower cost per year than most other types of roofing options.

The downside to choosing slate is mainly aesthetic, which is probably going to be a large factor in your decision regarding what kind of roof you want. Overall it is recommended that homeowners consider all their options before making any decisions about getting their homes reroofed. The type of roof you choose can greatly enhance or detract from the look and feel of your home as well as its value for years to come so please take this into consideration.

Wood Shake Roofing

Wood shake roofing is normally manufactured from cedar, pine, or redwood trees. They are normally thicker than shingles and made into wide boards that overlap each other. In fact, wood shingles are so thick that they often have spacers glued to the bottom so that nails can be used instead of staples or screws.

Wood shake is another one of those options where homeowners have a lot of choice in terms of style and design. Again take all factors into consideration.

Low Slope Roofing

Low slope roofs are a special type of roofing. It has a lower angle than any other roofs and is designed this way because it does not carry as much weight or volume of material so the risk of leaks is lessened. Low slope roofs are used on small structures that don’t need to withstand very heavy snow loads or hailstorms, they are normally installed over porches, carports and patios and when made from appropriate material can be ideal for accentuating your home’s exterior design.

Wood shake is another one of those options where homeowners have a lot of choice in terms of style and design. Again take all factors into consideration.
